Expectations from this album were very high, on my part anyway especially following the release of their previous and beautiful album “A God Like Inferno”.With so many good songs in one album is always hard to top up but “Deathlike” does it!
My favourites from this band so far include was their first single, released earlier this year, the fourth track “Deathlike”, followed by “I Am Rebirth” and “Never Live Again”. One can’t ignore the first riffs of “I Am Rebirth” sounding extremely similar to ‘Lost Civilisation’ from their previous album, but hey Metallica did a few version of “The Unforgiven” so why not?!
No this album is not fast paced, technical or brutal hardcore , but it’s evil as f*ck! The semi acoustic sound is very rare on metal cds nowadays and Ancient Vvisdom is the proud carrier of the flag.
Light up some candles, close the door, curtains and isolate yourself, play it loud while enjoying a glass or three of your favourite drink (ok I have to mention the abuse of alcohol is bad for your health…they say!) and you will thank me later for the experience.
Well if you don’t enjoy it fair enough, but these guys deserve more recognition and I am very looking forward to seeing them live again. I'm always trying to push this band, as I believe there is success waiting for them to happen! Enjoy you spawns of Satan!
